Taken straight from: the Australian College of Dermatology Journal..."Syringomas are benign skin tumours most commonly seen around the eyelid area. Uncommonly they can occur around the genital area. Eruptive forms of syringomas may occur on the chest, neck and abdominal areas. Syringomas are relatively easy to treat but they often recur after treatment." See a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment.

No : Syringoma are much deeper than what the chemical peel would treat.
